It’s that time again!
Cupcake of the month recipe is here!
This month’s cupcake is very special, Mr. Newman’s birthday is right around the corner and I thought I’d make him some yummy cuppy cakes just for him.
Mr. Newman is very fond of bacon. He will usually have some bacon on his burgers if he had the option, heck, he’d put bacon on cereal if chose to. He loves his bacon. A previous boss of his loves bacon just as much or maybe even more and joined a Bacon of the Month Club. Yeah that’s a thing.
One year for Christmas my mom gave him bacon soda, bacon mints and I believe something else bacon related. I found a bacon calendar one day at the store and almost bought it for him, but he said he wouldn’t want it because then every time he would look at it, he’d get hungry. Understandable. I’d be the same way with a foodie calendar.
Chocolate Bacon cuppy cakes.
The recipe calls for already cooked bacon that you’re going to add into the batter, and this is how I make my bacon, because it’s gotta be crispy. Crispy bacon is the best. Nummers.
Toss a sheet of tinfoil on a baking sheet, slap the bacon on top of that. Pre-heat your oven to 425-ish and then bake for about 12 minutes. Then. Then you let them sit for a tish bit and they’ll get all nice and crispity. That’s a word, trust me.
Then you get to crumble up the bacon.
I actually made bacon cupcakes a long time ago, and posted about it on my blog, at the very beginning stages of it..they didn’t turn out as well as I would have liked. They were weird, Mr. Newman probably disagrees.
Anywho. These cupcakes are going to be so much better than those.
Here comes the fun part..adding in the bacon.
I probably could have added a bit more to the batter and I can just hear Mr. Newman saying, yes, yes you could.
This batter was a bit thicker than I’m used to, I used oil and buttermilk instead of butter and no buttermilk. I know buttermilk makes things taste delicious, I mean buttermilk pancakes, buttermilk chicken fingers. Ugh, I’m getting hungry just thinking of those things.
I saved some of the bacon bits as a garnish to the cuppy cakes. I added some gold and very special sprinkles too. You can kind of see them in the background of this picture.
Here, I’ll be nice and show you a better shot of it.
Ok, how about this one?
Piggy sprinkles!! Because you know, pig…bacon…I hope Mr. Newman gets a chuckle out of it. 🙂
Happy birthday Mr. Newman, I hope you enjoy your birfday cuppy cakes!!!
